Ok so as well as being an amateur photographer I do spend some of my time as an education consultant.
Occasionally I find debates too interesting not to get a little involved. There is so much opinion out there in education much of it linked to politic, that it can be frustrating to just watch from the sidelines.
As a twenty five year school veteran I have seen black become white and become black again. As a school leader I have had to fully engage with meaningless progress numbers and dubious lesson gradings – and now deny that the former were ever important or the latter ever the intense focus of the accountability framework – Ofsted.
Education could be very simple if politicians stopped meddling and the pup of it was about the self actualisation of every child – well I can dream cant I!
